Hellish experience for Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will look to shed the troubles of recent weeks when his side take on Swansea on Saturday afternoon, after comparing the past months to being in hell.

One of the Gunners` most turbulent summers in living memory saw them lose key players Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy to other clubs, with an 8-2 defeat at Manchester United adding extra embarrassment.

"In my job, you expect to suffer. So that`s why when I go to hell one day, it will be less painful for me than you, because I`m used to suffering," Wenger told a number of national newspapers.

"I could write a book about the summer. It was the most disturbed we have had since I have been here.

"The book would be quite an interesting read. Not because of me, but because of all that happened. It was unbelievable."
